Spiritual Inspiration in an Age of Unbelief.
The twentieth century has been marked both by belief and unbelief. While church attendance has declined, the lives of many of the most salient figures of our times have been influenced and inspired by Christianity.
This book is a biographical exploration into the spiritual lives of some of those figures. It takes us on a journey into the deepest beliefs of some of the greatest writers in the English language - from G K Chesterton to Evelyn Waugh, Edith Sitwell to Siegfried Sassoon.
Many will be intrigued to know more about what inspired their literary heroes; others will find the association of such names with Christian belief controversial. Whatever our viewpoint, 'Literary Converts' touches on some of the most important questions of the twentieth century, making it a fascinating read.
